The Kitchen

The Kitchen Archive

In 2012, we designed and developed the digital archive website for The Kitchen, an experimental arts organization whose performance space has introduced the public to avant-garde art forms since the 1970s — including music, dance, film, video, and performance art. The Kitchen is digitizing over 10,000 archival videos and print ephemera that will be available on this site, including early performances by the Talking Heads, Philip Glass, and Laurie Anderson. The database uses tagging, indexing, and a random shuffle to encourage visitors to browse and engage with the collection.
